with sarah palin. dana milbank says it's all evidence the tea party is losing steam and he's with us tonight. >>> plus the boy scouts of america are considering dropping their ban on gay volunteers and members. it's another sign of the progress this country has made on gay rights. but not without controversy. >>> and finally, is the most powerful republican in the senate the next victim of the gop purity effort? we'll begin with the hearing on gun safety. mark glaze and david corn the washington bureau chief for mother jones magazine. mark, let me begin with you. you were there. were there any surprises or did everyone play their usual role? >> there's a certain amount of kabuki to every hearing. and certainly there is on something like this. i would say there was a fair agree of civility. and there were republican members on that committee who are not gun control fans but are quite thoughtful and showed they get the gravity of the moment and are open to rethinking the issue. >> david corn, let's look at more of former congresswoman gabrielle giffords' powerful testimony earlier today. >> sp

only strengthened its hold on the american party. but dana milbank provided a great op-ed looking at notable events the past week that suggests many republicans and supporters are growing wary of the tea party's grip on the gop. last thursday governor bobby jindal from louisiana told the rnc it's time for the gop to stop being the stupid party. on friday fox news said thanks but no thanks to sarah palin. on saturday word leaked that speaker john boehner had called some of his own members hard heads. and on monday john mccain and marco rubio signed on to an immigration proposal that's not all enforcement. it includes a pathway to citizenship for undocumented immigrants already in the states. dana milbank is with me along with joan walsh of salon. joan, are you buying the demise of the tea party argument that dana has made? >> i would love to, but i think it's too soon. and dana says that himself. all of these data points are real. i guess the only one i would take issue with is the bobby jindal characterization. i think bobby jindal remains, i guess talks a good game but remains a

are dying. >> ken vogel is the chief investigative reporter for politico and dana milbank is a political columnist for "the washington post." good afternoon to both of you. dana, i want to begin with the chuck hagel nomination. you have come out with a pretty stark defense. you write of the disparaging claments republicans are making against him and quoting you, most of that is false and the rest is irrelevant. now, what did you mean by this because wee keep being told by conservative that is mr. hagel is a homophobic, anti-semitic lover of hamas. >> the interesting thing is when senator hagel was a republican senator, various of his colleagues, republican senators, had a very high view of his foreign policy credentials, including senate republican leader mitch mcconnell. now that he's actually been tapped by this democraticed a m, they have some problems and they have to check into his record. even a guy that was one of them before, once he is blessed by president obama is persona nongrata among the congressional republicans. they're going to have a tough time i think making the case ag

for a bird. >> this country needs real solutions on guns. now. joining me now is dana milbank. dana, did fox news just miss the irony of dick cheney talking about gun safety proposals? >> well, irony has never been the strong point of the former vice president, but we can say that he has retained his ability to shoot from the hip. but he -- he's -- he is a remarkable spokesman on this issue. we can be pleased that he did not as harry whittington is happy he did not have an assault gun that day in the woods. but i suspect that the republicans will not bring him out as their main spokesman on the gun issue henceforth. >> but, you know, what has really caught my attention, in just three weeks democrats in the house and of course in the senate have already proposed several laws to combat gun violence from child gun access prevention to senator feinstein's assault weapons ban proposal. democrats have introduced 12 bills dedicated to gun safety. but then you see the extreme right, the ugliness on the other side. example, yesterday nia helsin who's the father of a 6-year-old killed in sandy hook te

in washington is dana milbank, political columnist for "the washington post," and in philadelphia lehigh university professor james peterson, a contributor to good afternoon to both of you. professor peterson, as the president was busy today working on immigration overhaul, the gop was trying very hard to stop being the stupid party, to stop being the big bucks party. all the while re-electing their leadership and celebrating a losing candidate with a fancy lunch. so what's wrong with that picture? >> i mean, once again i think they've got this all wrong. i mean, first of all, msnbc's own michael steele outperformed reince priebus in a lot of different ways when he was chairman of the party. so it's interesting reince got another crack at it after all the losses they sustained over the course of this election season. but they just have it all mixed up. they think they need to change their messaging. their messaging was very, very clear during the election season. their message to the 47%, their message in support of the 1%, their message to women and how they want to qualify

walsh, editor at large at "," msnbc analyst. and dana milbank, editor for "washington post." >>> dana, let me go to you first. weren't president obama's nominations today a perfect example of how elections have consequences? >> well, sitting where i'm sitting, not in the clint eastwood chair, i would say yes, it certainly does. it's a case of continuing a very tough policy of enforcement at the sec. so the president is sending a signal that at least in this area of regulation enforcement, he's not going to be backing down at all. surely, that's exactly what wall street and corporate america expected when he won that election. >> and that was the way he campaigned. in many ways, we're looking at, joan, him continuing the path that he campaign ds oed on, gots on and won. look at the poll on rights for gay people, 60%. on aid to the poor, 59%, on tax levels for millionaires and big corporation, 59%. women's issue, 55%. immigration, 55%. i mean, these are high numbers of people feeling the gop is out of touch on these issues. >> yeah, i mean, reverend al, the shocking thing is,

a democratic strategist and dana milbank a columnist for "the washington post." the president says addressing gun violence will be a priority. but given what you and i have just witnessed in the congress and a new debt ceiling fight to come in about two months, can we really be optimistic about anything being done to address the issue of gun violence in this country? >> martin, i was up on capitol hill today to watch them wind things down. forget about the fiscal cliff which you point out all they did was punt it for 60 days. >> exactly. >> they can't even agree on -- in the house on enacting the hurricane sandy relief bill which everybody agrees needs to be done. so for us to predict this new incoming congress is going to do anything is fool hearty. ics last month if the president doesn't act now and take advantage of that moment when the public's attention is focused on gun control, you wind up -- it winds up getting lost and swallowed. i fear that's what's happening here. it's important for you to keep this up on your show and elsewhere. they're just overloaded with things right now in the

that sound. the washington post dana milbank paints christie as an anomaly. americans are crying out for an end to ideological warfare. that has developed into christie's signature in new jersey. a poll found support for the tea party is at record lows, while the poll found 24% called themselves tea party members in 2010, 8% see themselves as one now. evenly between democrats and republicans, that changed this past year. currently, 47% of americans identify with democrats compared to 42% who align with the gop. last night on "hardball," crusader dick army diagnosed the problem as mistakes made by candidates on the trail. his prescription, however, isn't to change the fringe positions that got them into trouble, but rather to conceal them. >> i got this years and years ago from the head of the texas right to work committee, which was take your position on this issue, then keep your mouth shut about it, talk on the campaign trail about those issues that don't upset people where you can find agreement. >> in the end, this may not be just a tea party problem, it maybe a republican party

by "washington post" political columnist dana milbank, professor james peterson of lehigh university, and msnbc contractor jimmy williams. dana, i'm going to start with you. we saw freshman senator ted cruz of texas making a big push in the spotlight. this time going after chuck hagel. he was one of three senators who streeted against john kerry's appointment of secretary of state. he seems to be staking out a specific territory for himself, sort of more on the right. but when you wrote about senator cruz during the election, you said that you were, quote, comforted by the theory that cruz is driven more by ambition than by tea party doctrine. so does that theory still give you comfort? >> it does, karen. i mean, i can't say that what he's doing right now is reassuring for people who are seeking some sort of moderate and reasonable behavior. now, he voted against kerry most likely like his fellow texas senator john cornyn to appease the big donors down there in texas who have it in for john kerry. he's definitely been a real hotdog since he's arrived in the senate wanting to stir things up as m

rights on his own personal whims, our free republic has effectively creased to exist." dana milbank writes in the washington post that stockman was once considered too radical for congress, which is why he only served one term in the mid 1990s, but he is not too crazy for this congress. as milbank notes, "what's frightening is that stockman no longer sounds like an outliar." with reactionary statements that seem at times unhinged from reality, congressman stockman fits in just fine. >> our founding fathers were very concerned about having a separation of powers. they didn't want to let the president become a king. >> i'm afraud that president obama may have this king complex sort of developing, and we're going to make sure it doesn't happen. >> maria theresa, it's like, you know, i feel like i -- we played a little bit of sound from rachel maddow last night, my distinguished colleague. she floats the theory that this is part of the strategy is just raise the hackles of liberals, of the media and get them to sort of pay attention to the nonsincere spewing, and really there's no ideal

is in contributor to the daily beast, and dana milbank, a brilliant political commentist. >> hey! >> you're probably brilliant too. i thought that was an interesting gag reel. but that's her best. i don't think you have to make fun of her like i did sort of coming out of the last segment. but the stupid party has to make some changes, and maybe fox has to too. why didn't she cut the mustard with fox? they were giving her a ton of money. now she is not on the air anymore. >> her star has fallen. she is not as relevant as she used to be. chris, to put it in terms you can understand, she didn't rate. when someone doesn't rate, you don't review. >> she is only on for a minute. >> you have minute by minute ratings, you know that. what are your minute by minute ratings? >> you know what i thought? i thought she had something when she ran for vp. like a lot of people when she went out on that stage and announced with mccain, i thought there was star quality there. i know it's theatrical. that's politics. bill clinton had it. some other people don't have it. something faded. i think it was the way they used

from our record here in new jersey. >> you know, john meacham, dana milbank who occasionally writes a snarky column or two in the "washington post" actually offered a fairly broad supportive embrace of chris christie as the republican party's savior for obvious reasons. he says this. certainly the storm and more important christie's forceful response boosted the governor's standing. but the tea party's record lows and christie's record highs tell a larger story. americans are crying out to end the ideological warfare that has developed into christie's signature in new jersey. he began his term promising tax cuts and fighting with teachers unions over tenure, pay, education, now he preaches reconciliation. a recuring theme in his state of the state address tuesday afternoon. john, yeah, he did that. but he never once compromised a single value. he fought the unions. he won. he got the unions coming to him to reform schools. and he's fought budget battles and he's won. he's won them on his terms. but he doesn't vilify the democrats. he works with them. and this is -- again, for some r
